This diagnostic imaging and outpatient centre forms part of the impressive C4.1 mixed use development in Witan Gate, Milton Keynes.
This development included 3,500m² of commercial and office space and 0.6 hectares of beautifully landscaped roof top gardens. Car parking for over 1,000 cars is provided on site at ground level and two basement levels and a state-of-the-art Sainsbury's food store. The development also included 441 high grade apartments and townhouses.
Our client proposed to fit out one of the few remaining retail units as an MRI /CT imaging suite complete with consulting rooms, Ultrasound and Dexa scanner rooms. In addition to the medical rooms, the unit was also to include a large seminar / training room.
rla provided a full architectural service including interior design. The opening of this unit marks the culmination of a challenging design and construction programme, which saw us negotiate on contentious town planning issues and satisfy the brief in producing a workable design in the face of some extreme M&E service problems. Shielding for the scanning equipment presented some complex challenges as did the strengthening of the ground floor slab in the MRI room. The facility was opened to great acclaim and demonstrates our continued commitment to innovative design solutions.
